We live polar extreme lives. We believe and serve the largest and most powerful entity....God. The larger and more powerful we grow to believe Him we have no choice but to shrink. We live polar extremes.

The size of our work is, therefore, always over our heads. I don't possess a gnat's whisker of influence or management skill. He is the One. He is the One who knows all the ins and outs to the trickiest and stickiest of moments. I increase in cluelessness.

The size of our work and the size of us is quite significant. We must maintain our decomposure. We are nothing unless He enters the scene.

Whether elder or minister or momma, each of us will be in the game....effectively in the game...if we will remember that this all powerful One draws to our humility. We don't have all the answers. We don't even hold the best ideas. We are lucky skunks to wake up finding ourselves involved in the greatest show on earth...the God-walk.

It is by His mercy and grace we get to be a part of this grand fascination. Therefore, be encouraged not to promote yourself to any level beyond gratefully most fortunate. I love being a part of the church. I'm still in awe that He found me. I'm more in awe He lets me hang around the work force I get to be near.

The size of our work is not to be measured by the size of us....but rather by the size of Him.
